yes, having heros attached when importing causes issues with general traits. should happen at the start of evry campaign.

Hello Crew,
I am curious. Does the GC work with other mods such as Panzer Corps 2 Balance Overhaul? If so, will it affect your new movement speed on units and/or other modifications done to units?
Thanks
John

in the modmanager u can decide the order mods are applied.
the lowest mod is applied last and will overrule any changes from mods further up.

i do not recommend combining mods, since this tends to have unexpected side effects. if u wish to do so u surely can, but i have no clue what might happen then.

Thomas,
I just finished the Prelude with Balance Overhaul active. No gameplay issues, no crash issues, however, unit values were used from the PC2 BU instead of GC 1939-1945 (Custom Campaign) values, i.e. movement, etc.
Having to revert to lower movement speed was inconvenient, but not overly so.
Thank you for the quick response and for the FANTASTIC mod as well.

Just a question regarding heros: Should any scenario which does not provide a hero for the player, allow to buy one if there is enough prestige for it? I noticed there are some maps where I had enough prestige but did not get the option to choose a hero? Is that by design?

nope, if u dont get the comm event u should get the option to buy a hero if u have a t least 3.000 prestige.
If u only have 1k to 2.999 prestige u auto buy a weak hero.

If u don´t get any under those circumstances, please let me know which campaign/scenario that happenend.

Something to look out for:
i just noticed some 2 star conscripts on a map i rarely play. if u see any conscripts with 1 star plus please let me know which map. the concept of "veteran conscripts" is still beyond me.

could u add the campaigns? mod grew to big to check on each of the iterations.

Edit:
on first glance both 1939 and 1939-LTD spoils of war have the hero script and it starts at the start of the map by default.
u sure u didn´t auto-get the 1k one?
what prestige(exactly to the point) did u have at start of scenario?

I ran another check and apparently I was not correct. Those are the maps which are lacking heroes - up to 43:

- Belgrade(41)
- Vitevbesk(42)
- Kharkow42(42)
- Escape from Stalingrad(42)

First scenario of a campaign has no hero. Belgrade(41),Vitevbesk(42)
Kharkov and stalingrad both have the script and are working fine for me.

Hi Thomas,

currently still working my way through 42. Still amazed by your great job!

Two questions:
- "Stalingrad Docks ": I went to great length to sink the 5 patrol boats. But I did not get any response to that. No window popped up etc. Is this on purpose?

-Escape from Stalingrad: it is surpsingly easy to wipe the floor with the Sovjets. I even could save some of the Hungarian tanks and secure all Don crossings. But no way I am bringing the 6 infantries to the escape zone in time. All the mud slowing my movements down... not even bringing a bridge engineer helped. I would need at least another 2 turns. Will this have future consequences? Tatsinkaya just starts like I achieved everything, no mentioning of me not achiving the top goals. Can even buy a Tiger. I need to now if I do an enforced replay :)

Greets and thanks

There is no objective to sink the boats. Maybe i´ll add something when the current doover reeches this one.

By now u probs have accumulated many heroes. to keep u on ur toes u might have to up the diff setting or add some special diff setting from the advanced options.
Saving the hungarians will get u 2 comm points, but will not stop ur campaign from continuing.

I found an issue with the script when AI goes first. 3 scenarios are affected and will be fixed next update.

1942
Kharkhov
Escape from stalingrad
Tatsinskaya

If u run into this issue in 1943 please let me know.

Hmmm, in the mission description it says "...as a bonus objective High Command would like you to at least sink 5 of the Sovjet Patrol boats...."

I guess I should ignore the long mission briefing and just concentrate on the "Mission Overviews". To be honest I just recently even discovered this window :P

1941/1942 briefings haven´t been redone since first release. they are mostly imported from PC1 original.
when there is only maps in the picture the briefings might be missleading.

Darn, I just started 43NH and you are shafting me :D !
During the whole campaign up to now I always kept rotating my units to bring a large stock up to a high medium experience level. I normally always play with mostly my lowest exp units to train them. And now 43NH starts and i have to force-shrink my large exprienced core and all my prestige I worked for is gone too....

U are a general of the wehrmacht. those units are not ur personal belongings. :)


The scenarios u are about to face are well worth the price u pay.

Maybe this is a bug. Rostov 43.
I tried to bring the Totenkopfdivision from Kerch to the neighboring port.
Two things went wrong:
-when landing the 17cm Kanone became airborn as in an air transport?!?
-I tried several times to get the Tiger on a rail transport instead of driving it to the fight. But it always ended up back on a ship again?
